While our cast and crew are working feverishly getting “Matilda” ready for audiences this November, a crack staff of volunteer theatre parents are working on updates to the website. We are clearly not as talented as our children, so please be patient while we work out the kinks to bring you a site that we hope will serve you even better. The new site should be live prior to opening night. For an additional source of MHS theatre information, check us out on Facebook.
